    Was the weather on the cape as bad as it was elsewhere in MA the last coupla days? I hope not. Mrs. H was in Westford as a tornado sauntered though; they were holed up in the center of a building for a while on Tuesday 'til the storm passed.

    Reported 80+mph winds in Truro during "the event". It blew a quarter of the shingles off the house we are rented, tossed chairs & tables everywhere, and produced 5 screaming kids. All in all, the weather has been great!

    Thanks - That was from my fall trip to Glacier National Park a couple years ago.

    That is Bowman Lake, which is up the north-fork road of the park, about 15 miles from the tiny town of Polebridge.

    Excellent photo and gear pal!!

    Thank you rick, tonight I might go for a shot of the other side of the rack and the other speaker...teehee.

    A rack shot just isn't right unless you get a pair.

    I totally agree, and Rick you are the king of rack shots. Hint hint

    Wow...I would have soiled my drawers

    The Federal Aviation Administration said a Delta Airlines flight from Boston made an emergency landing in Denver after a hail storm damaged the plane.

    FAA spokesman Ian McGregor told The Denver Post that the plane landed safely at Denver International Airport at 8:42 p.m. on Friday. The flight’s destination was Salt Lake City International Airport.

    “I fly constantly and this was the scariest 10 minutes of my life,” Robin Jones, a passenger, told Fox 13 after arriving at the Salt Lake airport early Saturday morning. “I thought, ‘OK. Have I told everybody that I love that I love them?’ And as soon as I realized I had done that, I was like, ‘I’m alright. Everything’s going to be OK.’”

    Gorgeous shots!

    Are those from this evening's sunset in New Hampshire?

    Sometimes our unsettled weather produces a terrible kind of beauty, especially at sunset.

    Those are cute photos/cute children!

    30 seconds' worth of the ISS's flyover ca. 9:18 pm tonight -- just as it disappeared into the trees.

    @mhardy6647,

    Are you going to try to catch the meteor shower tonight?

    My wife and I tried last night between midnight and 1:00am, but I saw only four meteors and Lisa only one. We were a bit disappointed because it had been billed as a more spectacular "shower".

    I suspect your night sky is much darker in the north country. Night glow of Hampton really affects our sky.

    Yeah, we saw a few Weds and Thurs night; wasn't really that great in terms of numbers; which is really too bad because the viewing conditions -- 'specially last night -- were superb.

    We did see one pretty bright and long lasting one Wednesday night, which almost made up for the low numbers.

    Beautiful night for stargazing in Northern New England.

    Is that headlights or flash or what on the right? I used to do astro stuff through a 8" scope on film and hope to use the digi on some night stuff soon. What was the aperture on that one? Thanks both mom and dad are very attractive. I'm not into guys but as a photographer you respect the ones that are easy to photograph. Mom is just hot after 3 kids.

    It's the motion-detector lights on the garage. I was too lazy to go out through another door and procrastinated too long goin' out for the lights to have had a chance to turn off before I started shootin' :-P

    I took some of the earlier photos of the set with the camera panned a bit more to the west. I actually didn't need to move it at all with the super-wide angle lens I was using (Sigma 10 - 20 mm zoom on a DX format Nikon DSLR) :- )

    You certainly have a lot more stars in your sky than we do up here. But then again, we're walking distance from our small town and there is some light pollution.

    I suppose some of that is also your exposure, no? More time, more light(s)?

    Rick, just how much Viagra/Cialis are you taking? lol

    yes, longer exposure time will reveal dimmer objects. The exposure is cumulative; eventually enough photons strike the sensor (or film!) to result in a signal (image).

    ... but, yeah, the night sky here on a clear, moonless night is pretty darned good. Last night was a good "Milky Way night" as I like to call 'em.

    This isn't from last night (it's from last summer, in fact) -- but it illustrates the point :- )

    When we moved to New Hampshire's seacoast region in 1997, we had night skies like the one in your picture from last summer.

    I had not realized how much things have changed till my wife and I went out to view the Perseid meteor shower on Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

    As a member of our town's planning board, I've tried to promote a "dark-sky standard," but that doesn't help much when the light pollution is from neighboring towns. :)

Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same.

    Was enjoying the Sunday morning stillness when all of the back yard birds scattered in a flurry of wings.

    Then one, then TWO sharp skinned hawks flew in to perch in the neighbor's tree.

    I managed to get a semi-decent shot of one of them from the kitchen window.
